Breana Turner Named SBC Player of the Week


Breana Turner Named SBC Player of the Week

Florida Atlantic University guard Breana Turner was named Sun Belt Conference (SBC) Player of the Week for her efforts in the Owls 73-70 win over No. 25 Middle Tennessee State University on February 21. It is the first-ever win over a top-25 team and the first time an FAU player has been named SBC Player of the Week since FAU joined the conference. Turner is also the first freshman to be named Player of the Week by the SBC this season.

“It’s an individual award but this is an award that reflects well on our team,” said Head Women’s Basketball Coach Chancellor Dugan. “I’m happy that Breana was able to be the first one to win Player of the Week after three years in the Sun Belt.”

This was Turner’s third start of the year, and she was the focal point on offense early. As her two early lay-ups gave the Owls an early 10-2 lead, her nine first-half points gave FAU a 39-33 halftime lead. Turner made it to the free-throw line frequently in the second-half. She went five-of-six from the foul line and her foul shots gave FAU a lead by as many as 14 points with eight minutes to go.
